Please direct all inquiries and reservation requests to:
Ms. Maggie Audley
First United Methodist Church
500 E. Colorado Blvd.
Pasadena, CA 91101
Reservations may be made up to one year in advance of the requested date. Please include the name of your group, contact person with phone number and e-mail address, and the requested camp dates with all correspondence. When a reservation request is received, the church office will send a Cover Letter, Reservation Application form and a Hold Harmless form along with rental and deposit information within two working days. These forms and information are also available here, on the camp website.
Your reservation date(s) are held for three (3) weeks awaiting the completion of:
- Reservation Application form
- Hold Harmless form
- Certificate of Liability Insurance (see below)
- Deposit (including cleaning deposit)
A copy of your current Red Cross Lifeguard Certificate (if pool use is requested; lifeguard must be at least 18 years of age)
The cleaning deposit ranges from $50 to $250 based on the buildings reserved. Our goal is for you to leave the camp as clean as you found it. All, or a portion, of the cleaning deposit may be forfeited if the camp is not left clean.
You will receive a confirmation letter when all forms and deposits are received. The confirmation letter completes the booking process. If you do not receive the confirmation letter, please contact Ms. Maggie Audley in the church office.
CERTIFICATE OF LIABILITY INSURANCE
A general liability insurance policy for your organization must be presented at the time of registration. If your current policy is inadequate to meet the one million dollar (comprehensive, single occurrence) coverage, then you need to call your carrier and ask for a rider for the dates of the contract. PLEASE NAME CAMP SKY MEADOWS AND THE U.S. FOREST SERVICE AS CO-BENEFICIARIES. This policy is not specifically for medical treatment. It is a liability policy required by the U.S. Forest Service and our insurance company to protect us and the forest lands from negligence and malfeasance. If your organization does not currently have an umbrella liability policy, we ask that you purchase one before your stay. One suggestion is TULIP (Tenant User Liability Insurance Program) under HUB International which may be purchased online. Please contact the church office at (626) 796-0157 for instructions.
Groups canceling their reservation four or more months prior to the reservation date will receive a full refund of all deposits.
Groups canceling their reservation with less than four months’ notice, but more than two months’ notice will forfeit their rental deposit. The cleaning deposit will be returned.
Groups canceling with a two-month or less notice will forfeit all deposits.
If a camp is canceled due to closed roads or unforeseen camp closure, all deposits will be refunded.
Groups will be presented with a bill at the end of camp, which is then due and payable within five working days. Groups not meeting the minimum number of campers will be billed for the minimum number of campers. Checks for all deposits and camp use fees should be payable to First United Methodist Church of Pasadena.

Camp Sky Meadows is located within the San Bernardino National Forest and in an undeveloped area. In this forest, there are many wild animals, poisonous snakes, and areas with precarious footing. Campers use Camp Sky Meadows and the surrounding National Forest at their own risk and are responsible for their individual safety.
Camp Sky Meadows is also in bear country; therefore food is not allowed in sleeping cabins or in cars. Food should only be kept in Case Lodge or Manzanita Lodge.
Do not corner, trap or try to feed ANY wildlife at camp or on the trails.
Bears and occasional mountain lions have been sighted during the months of May through October. Groups are warned not to wander into the wilderness area around the camp alone. Groups of 4 or larger are recommended for any hiking on various trails.
